Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA) has just launched its new beef campaign, ‘The Opponent’, under the brand platform, ‘You’re Better on Beef’.
Sometimes it can feel like it’s you versus ‘the day’, so you better be prepared for what it throws at you. At least this is the idea behind MLA’s newest campaign from BMF.
The campaign focuses on how three women take on ‘The Day’ with the energy that beef gives them to go again and again and again. It emphasises the nutritional qualities of beef in a way that positions it as the perfect fuel for life.
In addition to the 90-second online film, from this weekend, the TV campaign (three 30 second executions) will air and will be supported by cinema, outdoor executions, radio, social media, pre-roll and point-of-sale:
“Personifying ‘The Day’ as your greatest rival is a natural evolution from last year’s ‘Life’s A Sport’ campaign for beef,” BMF ECD Cam Blackley said.
“It’s an undeniable truth that some days you feel like you’re winning and others you feel like you’re losing, but with beef in your corner you’ll always bounce back for another round. It’s a great piece of work for a client that consistently pushes for the best.”
“MLA has been excited by the possibilities the ‘You’re Better on Beef’ concept offers since BMF first presented it. Beef, packed full of protein, iron and zinc, is the fuel for everyday champions. We’re very proud of this work as it continues to challenge perceptions of bee,” MLA group marketing mManager, Andrew Howie added.
